What began as an experimental variation of Old Kentucky Tomme by Hungarian intern, Julianna Sedli, has become a Capriole success story.
Aged 4 - 8 months, this petite cheese is buttery and smooth like Capriole’s Old Kentucky Tomme, but nuttier and firmer like a Tomme du Savoie. In her latest incarnation, Julianna’s mushroomy rind is punctuated by Herbes de Provence, calendula petals, and safflower petals. She boasts a beguilingly feminine appearance and an aromatic finish on the palate, reminiscent of the flavors of Spring.
Our friends at DiBruno Bros. point out that “its herb coating makes it a perfect pairing for olives, and the buttery but tart quality begs to be paired with a rich, full flavored charcuterie. Like Brin d’Amour, it matches up well with a rosé, making it a perfect summer cheese as well as an outstanding example of the boundless creativity of American cheese making.”
